XTERRA Inflatable Paddle Boards Review

XTERRA Boards was founded because of a family’s love for adventure and days out on the water. At the time, most of the paddleboards available were the epoxy/hardboard type. They realized it was inconvenient and hard to transport and store. 

As inflatable stand-up paddleboards became popular, the family saw an opportunity to spread their love for fun and exercise with convenience. And, thus XTERRA Boards was born. 

XTERRA is currently based in San Diego, CA. It prides itself in producing high-quality iSUPs for users of every age and skill level. It achieves this by using military-grade PVC fabric and drop-stitch construction to make all its paddleboards. In addition, XTERRA ensures paddleboarders get the boards at the best price by selling them to users directly. The brand acts as the manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of all its products.

True to its cause, it has a wide variety of SUPs that include 10-feet, 10.5-feet, 11-feet, 12.5-feet, and 15-foot boards. You can find a paddleboard suitable for surfing waves, cruising on lakes, streams, oceans, and rivers, doing yoga, and fishing.

Each paddleboard comes with plenty of accessories that are ready to use out of the pack. This means you do not have to think about buying missing gear. All you need to do is unpack, inflate, and enjoy.

Apart from all this, XTERRA gives users a full refund for any board returned within 30 days of purchase. It also has a 90-day limited warranty on parts and accessories and a one-year limited warranty on all board manufacturing defects.

Now that you understand a bit more about XTERRA, let us look at three of its popular paddleboards.

XTERRA Inflatable Paddleboard Review

We’ll look at three of their paddleboards, namely, the 10-foot long, 10.5-foot long, and 12.5-foot long iSUP.

XTERRA 10’ Inflatable Standup Paddleboard

XTERRA 10’ Inflatable Standup Paddleboard

This XTERRA measures 10-feet long, 30-inches wide, and 6-inches thick. It weighs 29lbs, which is light enough to carry using the carry handle available on the deck. This all-purpose paddleboard offers perfect rigidity for beginner and expert paddleboarders alike. Its dimensions make it suitable for teens and adults alike. It is ideal for use on rivers, lakes, and the ocean. 

The board comes in black, orange, and white, so you can choose whichever matches your taste. Like all other XTERRA paddleboards, the 10-foot-long one is made from high-grade military PVC and can resist scratches and abrasions. This ensures that you can explore many places without fear and use it for many adventures to come. 

The board is double-reinforced to keep it rigid so that it does not warp. It also helps it maintain its shape over time. It has key features, such as it inflates in five minutes because of a double-action pump that fills the inflatable board with air in a downward and upward motion. This allows you more time to spend in the water.

Another key feature is an adjustable paddle you can alter to match your height. The iSUP also comes with three fins that help paddleboarders move steadily in the water. Finally, the SUP also features a GoPro mount that allows you to attach your camera and capture every moment.

The package also comes complete and ready to use immediately after unboxing. It includes:

  • 1 Ten-foot-long inflatable stand-up paddleboard
  • 6 D-rings; 4 of which form a bungee storage system
  • 1 Adjustable paddle
  • 1 Dual-action hand pump with a pressure gauge
  • 1 Removable center fin
  • 1 Ten-foot-long coiled leash
  • 1 GoPro mount
  • 1 Luxury backpack
  • Repair kit

XTERRA Pink Inflatable StandUp Paddle Board

XTERRA Pink Inflatable StandUp Paddle Board

XTERRA cares for all paddleboarders, and this is why you should not be surprised that they designed an entire board for women. It measures 10-feet long, 30-inches wide, and 4-inches thick. The thickness makes it suitable for lighter users who include teens and adult women.

Like the board above, the pink inflatable stand-up paddleboard weighs 29lbs which is still light enough to carry to and from the water. It has a maximum load limit of 200lbs. The most attractive feature of this board is the pink textured deck pad. It is not only eye-catching but prevents you from falling overboard.

As mentioned, there’s no exception on quality with XTERRA, so like other paddleboards under the brand, the pink iSUP comes built to withstand wear and tear during use. In addition, the 4 D-ring bungee cord storage system allows women paddleboarders to keep extra gear safe and secure. It also comes with a front D-ring to dork. This board comes with three fins that make the board smoothly glide in the water.

The package also comes complete and ready for use. It includes the following accessories:

  • 1 Pink stand-up paddleboard
  • 1 Adjustable paddle.
  • 1 Removable center fin

XTERRA 12.5’ Inflatable StandUp Paddle Board

The 12-foot 6-inches long inflatable stand-up paddleboard is made for those who love discovering new places on the water or paddling for long distances. 

The length and 30-inches width make it ideal for expert paddleboarders as beginners may experience challenges in controlling movement. It has a 6-inch thickness which makes it firm while on the water. The thickness also allows for a maximum load capacity of 250lbs, which leaves room for you to carry some extra gear.

Its thick, multi-layered military-grade PVC coating and drop-stitch construction give you peace of mind when exploring new places. It comes with several features which make touring a worthwhile experience. For example, it spots a single removable fin for better control of the touring paddleboard.
